Functional Respiratory Imaging (FRI)- A Novel Approach To Assess Lung Health

Respiratory health is deteriorating day by day globally due to an increased exposure to certain risk factors such as pollution, smoking and passive lifestyle. Although in general the respiratory diseases can be kept under control, there is still a need for better phenotyping and management of lung diseases such as COPD and Asthma. The conventional Lung Function Tests like spirometry don’t provide any regional information and have limited sensitivity to detect changes in pulmonary function in an early stage because the healthy areas in the lung compensate for a progressive disease making it undetectable. There is a need to shift to a better technology which can look at the overall lung health.

National Workshop on Virtual Instrumentation at Osmania University

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University College of Engineering(A), Osmania University is organising a national workshop on virtual instrumentation.

OBJECTIVES:

Date of event: October 9-11,2013

Last Date for Registration: October 5, 2013

Virtual instrumentation is the use of customizable software and modular measurement hardware to design, test, measure and automate instruments virtually.

LabVIEW is a system design software with comprehensive tools needed to build any measurement or control application in dramatically less time and considered to be an ideal development environment for innovation, discovery, and accelerated results.
